Why would an unknown and self-acknowledged “long shot” 74-year-old who believes in cryonics — the freezing of dead humans until a cure might be found for what killed them — be entering the AZ U.S. Senate race to challenge John McCain?
And why would John McCain’s assigned reporter at the daily newspaper be covering David Pizer’s late and unlikely entry into this race?
If Pizer sounds like a Jimmie Lee Deakin ringer to you, you’re not alone. Deakin, no economics wizard, was facing foreclosure on his home, only to mysteriously regain his financial footing at the conclusion of the 2010 election cycle. Known for his crassness, he also fumbled his FEC campaign filing. His sole purpose was splitting the vote to help assure a McCain victory. It didn’t hurt that moneybags McCain outspend his conservative challenger roughly ten to one — aided by 2008 taxpayer matching funds.
The more people with no chance to win take on the censured McCain, the better it is for McCain. Siphoning off votes from an actual reputable challenger is madness at best. You can fill in what it is at worst.
Perennial candidate Claire VanSteenwyk, who calls himself Van the Radio Man, though he‘s nowhere on your radio dial, and Alex Meluskey, who wants to “streamline” our “flawed “ immigration system are cut from the same cloth.
Dr. Kelli Ward, a two term state senator and physician, who understands the complexities of the increasingly costly monstrosity known as Obamacare, has the credentials that give her a real chance to take out the senior senator who will be 80 by Election Day.
This election is too important to leave to bozos and a practiced snake. U.S. Senate terms are six long years. After more than three decades of McCain working to promote amnesty for illegals, collusion with the left to purge conservative elected precinct committeemen from the state GOP and targeting conservatives for IRS scrutiny, Arizonans deserve real representation.
In 2008, former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay summed up then-presidential candidate John McCain very well with these words. He was right then. His words still resonate today.
